The muscle behind my knee is still bothering me a little. I wore high heels to work today, which I rarely ever do, and oddly enough, the muscles hurt less than when I wear flats. Emily H thinks a muscle might be irritated and by wearing heels the muscle isn't stretched as far when I walk which might help it feel better. As much as I like that idea, I don't plan on spending much time in heels. Yesterday it felt better as I ran farther and faster. I don't know. Today I decided to forgo my tempo run today and get on the elliptical instead. Definitely the right idea. It didn't bother me one bit during the workout and felt fine after, too! This week is a step back week on my training plan as well, so it's coming at a good time.
Okay, off to start the day. By this time tomorrow the NYRR YPC event will be over and we can start working on the next one (April 13th). Oh, and tomorrow, in celebration of St. Patrick's Day, I have a recipe for Irish Soda Bread to share with you!
- Do you tend to get stressed out when planning an event?
- How do you feel about Daylight Savings Time? I like the sunlight after work, but it's still dark when I finish my workout in the morning now! #fail
